About IPSL

Year Founded: 1982

IPSL aims to promote service learning through conferences, publications, training, and research opportunities for faculty and service agency staff and to offer international programs for undergraduate and graduate students from higher education institutions around the world. Our programs combine academic studies and community service and full cultural immersion to give students an intense, more meaningful study abroad experience. We collaborate with partners to offer short-term and semester-long programs that unite study abroad with volunteer service opportunities in host communities. We engage students, educators, and grassroots organizations all over the globe in hands-on service to promote social justice, mutually beneficial relationships, sustainable change, and dedication to our shared humanity.
